Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs is preparing regulations to boost dry port development in the country.

The ministry's infrastructure coordination deputy Ridwan Djamaluddin said dry ports can help reduce dwell times. He mentioned his ministry wants dwell times to be reduced to two or three days.

"We need dry ports to ease logistics," he stated at his office in Jakarta on Monday (10/10).

Indonesia currently has two dry ports in Cikarang and Bandung. There are plans to build dry ports in Tangerang, Semarang and Surabaya.

"Private sector will build the dry ports," he concluded.
